Counselling for Career Change
Career change occurs for many reasons. Some people are forced into career change due to circumstances related to health or ability, some want to break into a new field or try something new.

Career Counselling, what is it?
It is a process that helps you understand yourself in regards to the world of work and where you do, or might fit within it. It aims to assist you in making life decisions around education, training and career progression.
There is often a negative connotation around the word ‘counselling’, which assumes you have some sort of problem. Dispel this myth, it’s not the case. But, just like you take your car to the mechanic to get fixed, a career practitioner is someone who is an expert and will help you get in line with your career.
Career counselling is for everyday people; whatever field you are suited for.
I visited Tammy-Lee at a time when I was unhappy in my career but lacked direction. Tammy-Lee was friendly, approachable and encouraging. Through Tammy-Lee I was able to have the support I needed as she helped me identify not only my end goals but also each step towards achieving them, perfectly tailored to suit my lifestyle and existing commitments.
Tammy-Lee had the tools to assist me in my decision-making and set out various options and consequences, talking through each option and answering all of my questions so that I felt informed and secure in my choices. The true extent of Tammy-Lee’s dedication towards assisting me as her client was evident as she was present throughout each step as well as at the culmination of me achieving my goals, offering her congratulations and enduring support.
I am very thankful for Tammy-Lee’s guidance and help when it was most needed and would not hesitate to recommend her.Ashley
